|Not to toot my own horn but this muffin picture is pretty great, right? (toot-toot). lol.|
Can you believe I started crafting that late in life? What the heck was I doing before that?
Anyway, besides teaching me to craft, she also taught me a few recipes that I use pretty regularly. One of them is a muffin recipe. Let me tell you, these muffins are crazy good. I have not met anyone who tasted them and didn't demand the recipe (or demand that I make them their own batch - ahem brother). So, instead of typing up the recipe a thousand times, it will be much easier to direct them here. Besides, I love sharing information with you guys! You are welcome ;)
2 cups flour
1 heaping cup of sugar
2 teas baking powder
1/2 teas salt
3-4 shakes of nutmeg
1 cup (+ a little more) milk (I use half and half and a bit of buttermilk- but any milk will do)
1/3 cup vegtable oil
1 teas vanilla
Some fruit and nuts of your choice (I used apples and walnuts here. And when I use apples, I shred it on a cheese grater so that it won't have big apple chunks)
Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients. Mix in your wet with your dry until just mixed (don't over mix). Then stir in fruit. Pour into large muffin pan. Pour a little cinnamon-sugar on the tops.
Bake on 350 for 30 minutes (less or more depending on your oven - mine takes about 32 minutes).
This makes 6 big muffins - and they barely last a day in my house (especially if we have visitors) which is perfect because they are delicious when eaten right out of the oven. YUM!
P.S. I think they have about a bazillion calories/fat grams - especially with that half and half. So maybe you should make sure you make them when you have a company. ;)
